Looking forward - part 2

As promised here's part 2 of my 2012 year end project.  Yes you read that right - 2012.  I've been crafting with the end of the year in mind!  I'm not crazy - well maybe a little.  It's part of my new tradition of focussing on dreams for the year.  In addition to the card to my future self that I shared with you earlier this week, I also created a time capsule to be opened at the end of the year.

My goal in creating this capsule what to create a box of hope for the future.  Something, that when opened at the end of the year will help me to reflect on how far I have come in the year.  I've filled it with things that represent some of my goals. Things that I want to achiever personally.  Items that represent the kind of person I aspire to be.  It's extremely personal so I'm not going to share everything that I put in here - but here's a snapshot of the box itself.

I upcycled a tea2 box that I had at home (see below).  It was just a little sturdier than what I could make from scratch - and a lot bigger.

I used some designer series paper, some stamped embellishments, a bit of lace and twine, and hey presto - an up-cycled dream box.

Now to go and fill it with my hopes and dreams for the future.

Thanks for stopping by.
